Message from the Director

Welcome to the Cumberland County Department of Social Services' web site. We hope that this site will answer questions you may have about your Department and our services for the citizens of Cumberland County, North Carolina.

Our commitment is to strengthen our services to families. We believe the most effective means is to partner with families and the neighborhoods where they live to provide early help to vulnerable families. The help we want to provide is individualized, cost-effective and outcome driven. The outcomes will be families who are safe, have their basic needs met and increase/maintain health.

Your comments and suggestions are welcome as we work together, as a community, to improve the quality of life for families of Cumberland County.
